To protect frontline workers and customers, the Ohio Department of Health will reissue Ohio’s mask order and add the following provisions:
Each store will be required to post a sign outlining face-covering requirements at all public entrances to the store;
Each store will be responsible for ensuring that customers and employees are wearing masks; and
A new Retail Compliance Unit, comprised of agents led by the Ohio Bureau of Workers’ Compensation, will inspect to ensure compliance. A first violation will result in a written warning and a second violation will result in closure of the store for up to 24 hours.
